There was a thread on this some weeks ago on general@xml.apache.org. 
The conclusion I came to for crimson and that I would recommend for
xerces and xalan is to put everything in a single jar file and not split
into separate API jar file(s).  This make it simple for users and also
allows using JAXP API via current browser VMs like Netscape 4.7.  The
latest version of crimson is distributed this way -- the jaxp.jar file
containing APIs was removed.
